    From Radio Insight: The FCC has rejected Sound of Hope Radio NFP’s 98.3 WQEG-LP Chicago’s Application for Review and Motion for Stay filed in February against the modification application filed by 99.1 W256CL Park Forest IL to relocate to the Willis Tower on procedural gorunds. The FCC noted that the CP for the now Ohana Del Sol, LLC owned translator expired on June 5 although a new, similar modification application was filed on June 16. Sound of Hope Radio petitioned to the FCC to deny the application originally made by Edgewater Broadcasting as being the fourth in a series of hops to move W256CL forty miles into Chicago, seeking the denial to to allow itself to submit a modification closer to “the Chinese community in Chicago”. Walco Enterprises “Boss Hogg Radio” 1170 WKFL Bushnell FL has been issued a Notice of Violation for operating outside of its licensed parameters.

    From Radio Insight: Sports Illustrated’s Richie Whitt is reporting that iHeartMedia Rock “97.1 The Eagle” KEGL Fort Worth/Dallas will flip to Sports as soon as Friday, September 30. The station will rebrand as “97.1 The Freak” confirming what we first reported earlier this week in our Domain Insight report. Current afternoon hosts Ben Rogers and Jeff ‘Skin’ Wade and Dallas Mavericks basketball will remain on the station, but be accompanied by a number of station newcomers. Whitt reports that former “1310/96.7 The Ticket” KTCK afternoon host Mike Rhyner will be a part of “The Freak”. Rhyner, aka ‘The Old Grey Wolf’, was co-founder of KTCK in 1994 and has co-hosted “The Hardline” in afternoons from 1995 until his abrupt retirement in January 2020. Other expected hosts mentioned are former KTCK hosts Julie Dobbs and Mike Sirois and former “105.3 The Fan” KRLD-FM host Jeff Cavanaugh. KEGL would become the third Sports talker in Dallas joining Cumulus’ KTCK/KTCK-FM and Audacy’s KRLD-FM. KTCK currently ranks seventh in the market with a 4.3 share, while KRLD-FM is twenty-third with a 1.8 share. KEGL currently ranks twenty-eighth in the market with a 1.3 share. This would mark the second time the “Eagle” Rock brand has been killed off from the station. The brand originally launched in 1981 as a Rock/CHR hybrid before moving to Top 40 completely in the late 1980s. It would shift to Active Rock in 1992 until its flip to Soft AC “Sunny 97.1” in 2004 and then Spanish Oldies “La Preciosa 97.1” in 2005. The “Eagle” brand and Rock format would be resurrected in December 2007. The expectations of a format change at KEGL grew exponentially after late afternoon hosts “The Treehouse” Dan O’Malley and Alfie Coy and Dallas Region President Kelly Kibler were let go and KEGL/KZPS Program Director Don Davis resigned earlier this month. more

    From Radio Insight: The low rated Hot AC format of “My 97.1” KMIY Green Valley/Tucson AZ came to an end this afternoon as the station began stunting with Spanish Rhythmic music ahead of a format change. KMIY, which changed call letters to KMMA last week, is running sweepers in both Spanish and English telling people to get ready for a new radio station, asking them to be part of history. No date or time for the new format launch is mentioned. We reported on domains registered by iHeart for the station back in our July 13 Domain Insight report. KMIY had a 0.6 share in the August 2022 Nielsen Audio ratings. The brand never recovered following the move in January 2021 from the Class C signal that is now home to Country “92.9 The Bull” KHUD Tucson to the rimshot C3 signal. more

    From Radio Insight: After eighteen years between “790 The Ticket” WAXY and 560 WQAM, Jonathan Zaslow has exited Audacy Miami. Zaslow had been hosting 10am to 2pm on WQAM since last October when the company moved most of its local Miami Sports programming over to 560. He previously spent his entire professional career at WAXY starting as a producer in 2004. He would then host nights and then mornings in 2011. Zaslow and then co-host Amber Wilson moved to middays in 2019 and he has hosted solo since her departure in June 2021. Zaslow has also hosted the NBA’s Miami Hieat pregame, halftime, and postgame shows on WAXY since 2010. The franchise’s games will be moving to WQAM this season. The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson reports that WAXY morning hosts Brendan Tobin and Leroy Hoard will move to middays on WQAM. WQAM morning hosts Joe Rose and Zach Krantz will be simulcast on both stations just as afternoon hosts Marc Hochman and Channing Crowder are. Today was the last day for the “Zaslow Show” on local Miami radio. 18 years, very good run. Thanks to all my listeners!!! — Jonathan Zaslow (@ZaslowShow) September 23, 2022 more

    From Radio Insight: The changes came within a few days of each other. On Sept. 7, longtime Mainstream Country WCTQ Sarasota, Fla., began playing “Country’s All-Time Favorites for the Suncoast,” using iHeart’s gold-based Country log. Two days later, another heritage outlet, Cumulus’ KXKC Lafayette, La.,became “Your Home for ‘90s Country.”* KXKC fit the classic profile of a second-in-the-format station, pulling out of a “New Country” battle with Townsquare’s KMDL (the Dawg), although the market already had two gold-based Country outlets. WCTQ’s mainstream Country competitors are the two Tampa outlets, WQYK and WFUS (US103.5).* Gold-based Country has gotten more industry attention over the last year with the industry finally deciding that fighting over “New Country” has led to too many wars of attrition, and that the position has become harder to defend as streaming challenges the viability of all current-based formats. Despite this, the format adds stations gradually, and others like WNKN Cincinnati opt out. So two flips in as many days is attention-getting. I took a First Listen to the revamped WCTQ and KXKC. I also took Fresh Listens to the top two Country stations in PPM-rated markets: iHeart’s WQIK Jacksonville, Fla., and Bonneville’s KNCI Sacramento, in the interest of hearing two thriving mainstream Country outlets. In the August PPMs, the 30-year-old KNCI was up 6.9-8.3-8.7, its highest ever ratings. WQIK held at a 10.2, its best numbers since 2017.* WQIK has a mainstream Country competitor in WGNE (Froggy Country 99.9). KNCI has a low-rated Country gold rival in KNTY (Real Country 103.5). As a result, WQIK was still positioned as “Jacksonville’s No. 1 for New Country.” KNCI, with more room to maneuver, was still using “new country” but often in conjunction with “…and classics” imaging. WQIK has a handful of early ‘90s anthems, but KNCI goes further into that stash. Both stations play their top current around 55x a week.* KNCI, in particular, seems to be trying to move back into the place where mainstream Country outlets once lived as a matter of course—moderate spins on currents, significant library without being gold-based. WCTK (Cat Country 98.1) Providence, R.I., has been a prominent showcase for that approach. They were the No. 3 Country outlet in PPM markets in August, just after WQIK and KNCI. Here’s KNCI just before 4 p.m. on Sept. 13: Parmalee f/Blanco Brown, “Just the Way” Miranda Lambert, “White Liar” Dylan Scott, “My Girl” Jason Aldean, “Trouble with a Heartbreak” Eric Church, “Springsteen” Maren Morris, “The Bones” Chris Young & Kane Brown, “Famous Friends” Dan + Shay, “Glad You Exist” Mitchell Tenpenny, “Truth About You” Dustin Lynch f/Mackenzie Porter, “Thinking ‘Bout You” Taylor Swift, “Mean” Brett Young, “Lady” Walker Hayes, “Y’all Life” Carrie Underwood, “All-American Girl” Morgan Wallen, “You Proof” Billy Currington, “Do I Make You Wanna”—Currington is headlining the station’s upcoming Country in the Park 2 with Russell Dickerson, Jessie James Decker, Gavin DeGraw, and Kassi Ashton. Sammy Kershaw, “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful”—the stager said “this used to be your jam on the way to do some early-morning fishing. Here’s another KNCI classic.” Here’s WQIK at 1 p.m. on Sept. 14 Mitchell Tenpenny, “Truth About You” Kenny Chesney, “She’s Got It All” Jimmie Allen, “Down Home” Michael Ray, “Whiskey and Rain” Zac Brown Band, “Out in the Middle” Darius Rucker, “Wagon Wheel” Morgan Wallen, “Wasted on You” Justin Moore, “With a Woman You Love” Rascal Flatts, “Life is a Highway” Cole Swindell, “She Had Me at Heads Carolina” Jason Aldean, “Trouble with a Heartbreak” WCTQ in middays was using the iHeart gold-based Country log also heard on KXXY Oklahoma City and WESC Greenville, S.C. Music goes back as far as a few ‘70s titles (the oldest being 1975’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” by Glen Campbell) and cuts off around 2011. The most-spun titles play around 14x a week. I’ve written about the canned feel of many stations recently, so it’s worth noting that despite using WMTX (Mix 100.7)’s Brody in middays, there was a good “real-time” feel here. Here’s WCTQ just before 10 a.m.: Alan Jackson, “Wanted” Tim McGraw, “My Next Thirty Years” Hank Williams, Jr., “Family Tradition” Toby Keith w/Willie Nelson, “Beer for My Horses” Garth Brooks, “Shameless” Jason Aldean, “Crazy Town” Doug Stone, “In a Different Light” George Strait, “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” John Anderson, “Seminole Wind” Darius Rucker, “Wagon Wheel” Shania Twain, “You’re Still the One” Brooks & Dunn, “Brand New Man” Mark Wills, “19 Somethin’” Travis Tritt, “I’m Gonna Be Somebody” “My favorite song on KXKC, based on the BDSradio monitors, is one I haven’t heard yet. The station is playing Rodney Crowell’s 1981 “Stars on the Water” (better known in non-Gulf Coast markets for its George Strait remake) 10x a week. The new end of the music is 2003-04 with titles like Pat Green’s “Wave on Wave” or Big & Rich’s “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” Most-played is 21x a week. When I heard the station, it was in a commercial-free hour billed as a “takeover.” Here’s KXKC just before 10 a.m.: Clint Black, “Like the Rain” Alan Jackson, “Little Bitty” Travis Tritt, “Drift Off to Dream” John Michael Montgomery, “I Swear” Alison Krauss, “When You Say Nothing at All” Brooks & Dunn, “She’s Not the Cheatin’ Kind” Joe Diffie, “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)” Faith Hill, “Wild One” Mark Wills, “19 Somethin’” Kenny Chesney, “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” Garth Brooks, “Papa Loved Mama” Radney Foster, “Just Call Me Lonesome” Shenandoah, “Sunday in the South” Tracy Lawrence, “Texas Tornado” Dwight Yoakam, “Fast as You” Doug Stone, “A Jukebox with A Country Song” more
